Anyone who has configured a Tor SOCKS5
client to run in a 'tor' instance that also
operates as an OR relay should isolate the
client to a separate client-only process.

The client function disturbs relay traffic
forwarding in a manner that lends itself to
confirmation analysis.

See bug 16585, particularly comment 5 and onward:


Perhaps read comment 10 first.
